Star Citizen trailer shows detailed ships and space battles

A new trailer for Star Citizen focuses on the sights and visuals of the upcoming persistent-world space sim.

The trailer briefly shows some of the human characters walking around as well as pure renders of the game's spaceships on an abstract background, but the real meat is the space scenes. Capital ships and smaller fighters alike are rendered at a very high level of detail as they fly through asteroid fields and blast each other with laser cannons.

Star Citizen is planned to launch some time next year.
